LinkedIn Spam - You have unread messages from dorothy

No Capital 'D' on Dorothy, but apart from that there is not much to give this one away - it is just a way of advertising a site - but this email is surprisingly effective, we're just not sure how it passed SPF and got in!

Opportunity is always within reach. Get the LinkedIn app.

iOS . Android

 

The target site of most of the links is actually: http://linkdne.ihostfull.com/ which Chrome literally marked as deceptive whilst we were examining it. In truth it is just a bounce for various adverts, probably forwarded on by a phony marketing company looking to get hits for unsuspecting customers.

Not a bad effort all-round and a great way of getting hits.

No real danger.

Mark as spam and report the sites.

Happy surfing!
